More than 50 firefighters are tackling a blaze at a mill in Greater Manchester.
Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said it was called to the mill in Clarence Street, Stalybridge, at 23:43 GMT on Saturday.
Five storeys of the mill were “well alight”, the service said.
Incident Commander Billy Fenwick said the fire had been “surrounded” by 06:00 on Sunday, and added that crews had stopped it from spreading.
“We are confident nearby buildings are safe from harm,” he added.
Mr Fenwick said firefighters would continue to tackle the blaze throughout Sunday and said a fire investigation team would attend to “try and establish a cause”.
Two aerial platforms are being used “to put water on the fire from height and to help control the plume of smoke”.
Mr Fenwick advised nearby residents to keep doors and windows closed as a precaution, to stop smoke entering their homes.
“Please also ensure you stay away from the nearby area and do not drive nearby – for both your safety and to make sure we can fight this fire,” he added.
Road closures are in place around Clarence Street and Tame Street.
